Trump-GOP tax cut integral to Democratic midterm message

The Trump-GOP tax cut must be the centerpiece of any Democratic midterm message, in the same way that Obamacare was the foundation for the Republican wave in 2010. That is the clear conclusion of the third phase of research on the new tax cut and the economy from Democracy Corps and AFT. This national web-survey finds the tax cut has become a more motivating election issue for its opponents than for its supporters. Moreover, the more Democratic messages emphasize the GOP’s “tax scam for the rich” and vow to raise taxes on the rich and corporations to fund investments, the greater the opposition to the tax cut and the growth in the Democratic congressional margin and turnout advantage.
